Publisher's Summary

A stand-alone novel set in the Zero Enigma universe.

Five months after the House War, the city of Shallot is on edge. The Great Houses plot and plan against one another, while the magicians rebuild and the common folk fear another outburst of fighting. And one young nobleman has a plan.

Rebecca is a half-caste shopgirl in an apothecary, dreaming of an apprenticeship that will allow her to rise out of poverty and finally make a name for herself in a city that has no use for her kind. But when her master undertakes a commission for an enigmatic young nobleman, she finds herself drawn into a maelstrom of criminals, ambitious nobles, and a plan that may shake the foundations of the Great Houses themselves....

Great standalone entry in a wonderful series

Overall, I love The Zero Enigma series the most of Christopher G. Nuttall's books. This was a wonderful entry, extremely engrossing. I would very much like to read more about Rebecca. The world the author has built is fascinating. I love the magic system (and zero magic aberrant), heartily dislike the castes, but they add to the plots and world, and really love alchemy. I place my order for another story of Rebecca, as well as more in the Zero Enigma series. BEAUTIFULLY read by Saskia Maarleveld.

enjoyable.

Not related to the other zero enigma books but still good, reminds me more of the schooled in magic series in the zero enigma setting.

Great read

Love this author! He is great at story telling and building characters. I am always completely captured and have never been disappointed.
